About this Variety
Daylilies are vigorous perennials that require little care in the garden once established. Daylilies adapt to a wide range of growing conditions and establish quickly and survive winters with little or no injury. Daylilies come in a wide range of colors and are an excellent addition to any garden spot. Daylilies are great for the perennial border, planted in large masses or as a ground cover. They tolerate less than ideal conditions and will bloom faithfully for years with virtually no attention. As the name implies, daylily flowers open in the morning and die by nightfall. Each flower stem typically has at least a dozen flower buds, and the plant stays in bloom for many weeks. They should be planted in every garden.
Daylily Stella D'Oro is a multiple AHS award winner and is perhaps the most popular daylily in cultivation worldwide. Its blooms are yellow, with deep throats and ruffled edges. Its foliage is linear and blade-like. Stella D'Oro's flower is classified as miniature and appreciated for its compact size, vigorous growth, profuse and extended blooming period. Very easy to grow and a garden staple. Plant en masse in broad sweeps for massive curb appeal. Will return for years to come.

First, decide where the planted will be located and if you want the pot needs drainage. Proper drainage is key if you are placing the planter outside. If placing outside, remove the drainage plug(s) from the bottom. Empty about 85% of the medium bag into the pot. Firm and smooth the planting medium. Next, place the plants onto the soil, center within the space, spread out roots then add remaining medium on top. Water well, saturating the soil deeply. Continue to saturate soil for first few days then water as need. Sit back and let mother nature do her thing!
Plants in containers are above soil level and exposed to the elements which make them more prone to freeze damage during the winter than plants planted in the garden. Take extra precautions and overwinter the planter in a protected area (shed or garage) during freezing temperatures (best to provide a winter environment that is one zone hardier than your area). To overwinter: Water plants thoroughly and move borderline-hardy plants into a protected area to increase chance of survival. Because the plant is dormant, light isn't required. Check every few weeks to ensure the planting medium isn't dry. Water sparingly. Overwatering can cause the plants to come out of dormancy. Place planter back outside to restart its cycle when spring and warmer temperatures return!
